Drucker’s Lost Art of Management
Joseph Maciariello and Karen E. Linkletter
(McGraw–Hill, 2011)

While corporate malfeasance was once considered the exception, the American public is increasingly viewing unethical, immoral, and even criminal business behavior as the norm. According to the authors of Drucker's Lost Art of Management, there is some truth behind this new perception. Business management has lost its bearings, and the authors look to Peter Drucker’s vision of management as a liberal art to steer business back on course.

Recognized as the world's leading Drucker scholar, Joseph Maciariello, along with fellow Drucker scholar Karen Linkletter, provides a blueprint for making corporate American management more functional and redeeming its reputation. Throughout his career, Peter Drucker made clear connections between the liberal arts and effective management, but he passed away before providing a detailed exposition of his ideas. Maciariello and Linkletter integrate their Drucker expertise in management and the liberal arts to finally define management as a liberal art and fulfill Drucker's vision.
